Cafe World Tips and Tricks

Automatic Serving: Trap your Waiters and Waitresses with your Serving Counters.
 

You can achieve peak performance if you trap your waiters and waitresses (or servers). Locking waiters inside counters, stoves, or other items in Cafe World means you can automate serving altogether. Your servers will retrieve a dish and instantly serve it to a customer who has just sat down at a table, without walking to the table.

Various ways of trapping your waiters or servers exist. You can place all of your stoves and counters in a rectangular shape, for example, so that it creates an enclosed space with space in the middle where you want your servers and possibly chef to be trapped. You may need to barricade the edges of the counters, but in our experience, simply rotating the counters so that the open plates side is facing in will keep the servers inside.

Please note that there is one side of each food counter that shows a stack of plates. Your waiters and waitresses will go to that plate side to pick up the dishes, so that when you face them inwards in a rectangular closed-in area, they will stay inside. Otherwise you can put tables, decorations, plants, dividers, or whatever else you can to close in the space you've created.

Stoves also have a front to them. If you face them inwards in your closed-off area, your chef will stay inside. If even one stove faces outwards, your chef might be trapped outside. This is desirable for some because this leads to your chef automatically serving the dishes to the counters so you don't have to wait for him/her to travel...which leads us to the next category:

Automate Your Chef's Delivery of the Dishes to the Counters: Trap your Chef with your Stoves or outside of them.


Which Dishes are the Best Dishes?

Goal: Level Up Faster/Most Cafe Points

If your goal is to level up quickly, then you want to earn Cafe Points quickly.

You will need to:

1. Learn which dishes yield the most Cafe Points.

2. Gain Cafe World friends and easy access to their News Feed items to collect more Cafe Points.

For the first item, learning which Cafe World dishes get the most Cafe Points, generally, dishes with a shorter cooking time yield the most Cafe Points when you look at the total Cafe Points per hour. If you have the time, energy, and desire, then go ahead and make Bacon Cheeseburgers, Chicken Gyros, and Guacamole Chips.

However, most of us don't have the time to do this for very long. The following shows the total Cafe Points earned for each dish per hour.

The total Cafe Points consists of the points earned preparing the dish for cooking plus the total points earned for serving the dish.

In this table, dishes are sorted by cooking time. This way you can easily find which is the best dish to make if you are ready to serve it in 1, 2, 3, 4....hours.

Cheat: Leveling Up Faster with Cafe Points

If you are close to leveling up and just need some Cafe Points to do it, choose a dish that gives a lot of Cafe Points for making the dish (such as Chicken Pot Pie, which yields 66 points just for preparing it), click on it and earn those Cafe Points, and then delete the dish. Do this again and again until you get the amount of Cafe Points you need. This will cost you coins but you will get the Cafe Points you need.

If coins are an issue, then you might choose something less costly but a dish that yields a comparatively high amount of CPs in the preparation process.

Currently, the best longer-term Cafe World dish for getting the most Cafe Points is the Mystical Pizza.

For the second item, making good use of Facebook friends' Cafe World News Feed items, currently the best strategy is using the Google Chrome browser (download here), and adding the Cafe World extension called CW Feed Filter (get here after you have downloaded the Google Chrome browser).

Google Chrome is the better browser for Cafe World in general - it loads Cafe World faster. The CW Feed Filter is excellent for sorting  your friends' CW posts into one page. Each link to claim food, prizes, etc., opens in a new tab, and is greyed out once you have completed the step, so it's exceptionally easy to see what you have done and what you haven't.

Helping friends with Saving the Wedding yields 50 CPs, Grandpa's ribs yields 50 CPs plus you get a dish to serve in your own cafe, and helping friends with their Super Stove parts can yield up to 75 CPs each.

Remember that you don't have to be a Cafe World neighbor with a Facebook friend in order to get their news feed items. However, Cafe World offers better Cafe Point payouts for visiting neighbors than they used to, and this value depends on your own level. At level 70, for example, you get over 40 Cafe Points for visiting one neighbor. As well, spicing a neighbor's dishes yields the same amount. So, at level 70, you can receive over 80 CPs per neighbor visited.
